We ate here a couple of times on our recent stay. Food was solid and generally good. Beautiful settling and staff friendly. The kids meals we had were on the smaller side for the price. Selection of food on offer reasonable.

We ate here a couple of times as we were staying at the resort. Overall, it’s ok. Pizza and burgers rule the menu and they are reasonably expensive. It’s a resort menu without a great deal of inspiration.

Nice setting with views of the beach. We went there several times during our stay in the island. The service was very good and it was very quiet during our stay.

Sitting on the deck at sunset was the greatest pleasure: a warm breeze, attentive staff, quiet - and marvellous food, especially the seafood chowder [which I had 3 nights out of 6!] Well priced, as were the cocktails [NZ$12 in happy hour, otherwise NZ$16].More
